Weaver Ants

In my garden, about two metres off the ground, I spotted what looked like a quilt of autumn leaves.  On closer inspection I realised that it was a nest, built by weaver ants.  The ants stood up to defend the nest when I approached.

As you may already know, I hate the ants that bite me when I practice yoga in the garden. But these ants are making a remarkable nest.
